on young minds. we don't benefit from ignorance. we don't benefit from not knowing the science of this epidemic of violence. these are a few of the 23 executive actions i am announcing today but as important as the steps are, they are in no way a substitute for action from members of congress. to make a real and lasting difference, congress must act. congress must act soon. i am calling on congress to pass some very specific proposals right away. first, it is time for congress to require a universal background check for anyone trying to buy a gun. [applause] the law already requires licensed gun dealers to run background checks and over the last 14 years, that has kept 1.5 million of the wrong people for getting their hands on a gun but it is hard to enforce that law when as many as 40% of all gun purchases are conducted without a background check. that is not safe. that is not smart. is not fair to responsible gun buyers or sellers. if you want to buy a gun, whether it is from a licensed dealer or a private seller, you should at least have to show you are not a felon or somebo

to focus on other things, like each other which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense. from td ameritrade. >>> let's get a little bit more on the alleged hoax and the mystery surrounding the notre dame football star manti te'o. >> the university says he's the victim of an online phenomenon in which someone creates a fake social media profile. listen. >> i would refer all of you, if you're not already familiar with it with both the documentary called "catfish," the mtv show, which is a derivative of that documentary, and the sort of associated things you'll find online and otherwise about catfish or catfishing. >> all right. let's get some more right now with the executive producer of mtv's "catfish," ariel schulman is joining us. ariel, thanks very much for coming in. first of all explain to our viewers what catfishing is, what "catfish" is all about, how you got this name. >> i mean, it's amazing to me that it's becoming such a used term at this point. it didn't mean anything before the documentary. there's a character who uses it in reference to an o

may still deny the overwhelming judgment of science but none can avoid the devastating impact of raging fires and crippling drought and more powerful storms. >> so, van, you've been talking about this for years. and it sounds like, you know, the president is now making it a priority in his second term. what's the most important thing he's going to vo to have to do addressing climate change. >> first, hurricane sandy, the superstorm, wait it hit new york new jersey that put it back on the map. it wasn't talked about by either candidate in the last round. i was totally thrilled, not just that, he spoke to every stripe in his rainbow coalition, historic statement with regard to lesbians, gays, the entire, new emerging majority. all of that i think is in jeopardy if we don't do anything about climate change. he can do a lot of things with executive orders, the existing coal plants could be made more clean with executive authority. also he should do a bilateral with the leadership of china. china's having a horrible environmental crisis, air quality's going down. an opportunity for

? and that's what, as i understand the social science research, it's never been definitively established. b um, we have particularly in the south a general sense that people are responsible for their own self-protection and that they need weaponry to do it, and there is also a higher murder rate, high or violence rate in the south. it's very hard to distinguish what causes what in that situation. >> can i -- we're trying to, we can't isolate. i would argue that, well, i mean, that's the first time i've heard this research that somehow violent crime goes down when a violent video -- i've never heard that or seen that taken, but that said, to try to isolate this, i think, is slightly wrong. let me say one thing, and that is pre-'94 crime bill you had a 30-year run of crime going up and violence going up. james q. wilson, the sociologist, would say we're just going to have to get used to this fact. that policy passed in '94 which began the decline both in crime as well as violence. had a comprehensive approach about more police on the street doing community policing, getting guns off the stree

suggested they put a green card to the diplomas of seniors getting advanced degrees in science and technology and engineering and math. we need to expand the program, and at the same time, we need effective visa programs and on skilled seasonal workers as well. number five, immigration reform must include an effective and efficient verification system. such a system can and must prevent unlawful employment and one of those employers and employees play by the rules and protect america's fundamental rights and we must protect our border through smart enforcement. now, according to the migration policy institute, immigration enforcement takes share of federal law enforcement spending. today it did not undocumented migration is at or below zero. but we must realize that we will not meet our immigration challenge through the enforcement alone. the goal of our immigration enforcement policy should be to remove real threats to our borders and inside our country. we should report serious offenders and we should not deport people who have a lack of papers is there serious crime. we wrot

to -- these people who deny the science right. we're not gonna -- how can you -- i forget how he phrased it. people still deny but look at the fires and look at the tornadoes and look at the storms and look at hurricanes -- he didn't say sandy. that's what he was talking about >> people laughed in my section when he said people deny the science. >> there is a noticeable shift in the way he communicates since the election, i think. not just in this speech but in the way he talked about gun control last week. it is a very -- i mean he has really taken this mandate we have a debate over whether or not the president has a mandate. he knows the people are behind him. he knows that the people realize that whatever he wants to get done is met with so much obstructionism that he's -- he's on top here. he can say where he wants to go and the people are with him. >> progressives have been saying for a long time, regardless of what he says, there is still going to be op sition. they're still going to view him as a socialist. he satisfies no one on the opposition to say let's all hold hands. they'll still find
